REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

To the Citizens of Cohasset: 

Increasing demands upon town government continues to burden the Board of Select- 
men with duties previously unheard of, at the local level. The Board convened in over 
sixty regularand special meetings oftheir own, as well as, attending numerous others with 
town boards, committees, employee bargaining groups and various regional, county and 
state gatherings of direct concern to the town. Needless to say, there were also countless 
hours spent on routine daily operations of departments under their control. 

The Selectmen appointed By-Law Study Committee, has diligently continued its task 
of updating and codifying the By-Laws of the town. Some revisions were accepted by the 
last annual meeting but it has since been judged more appropriate to complete all re- 
visions and submit a total package for acceptance, possibly at a special meeting. 

The Growth Policy Committee appointed by the Selectmen in compliance with 
Chapter807ofthe Acts of 1975, completed its task and submitted its report to the Massa- 
chuestts Office of State Planning. The committee is to be commended for a job well done 
within the time schedule set forth. 

A new modular type ambulance was acquired at reduced cost through a quantity pur- 
chase arrangement with the state. It is equipped with the latest life-saving devices and only 
awaits delivery of a radio before it will be certified for service. Responsibility for its opera- 
tion has been transfered to the fire department with both fire and police personnel co- 
operating in manning it. Otir Emergency Medical Technician (E.M.T.) training program 
has been expanded thus assuring that Cohasset will have one of the best emergency 
medical services in the area. 

The town has continued to receive Federal Revenue Sharing funds. Funds received this 
year of $95,277.00 compared to $84,507.00 for the previous calendar year. As in the past, 
funds were applied in a manner which reduces the tax rate. The future of Revenue Sharing 
will be determined by the new administration. We trust that the concept continues as it 
has been a useful means of income which may not have been available to Cohasset, other- 
wise. 

We have continued to benefit from both the Comprehensive Employment and Training 
Act (C.E.T.A.) and Youth Corps programs. Both the town and its participants have bene- 
fited from these programs which are 100 percent Federally funded. It appears, now, that 
they will continue at least through next year. 

Several public works programs under the jurisdiction of the Selectmen were carried out 
during the past year. First, with the cooperation of the Highway and Tree & Park Depart- 
ments and under the direction of the Government Island Committee, an expanded park- 
ing facility accommodating 50 vehicles was completed, greatly relieving congested con- 
ditions on the island. Next, a 1 0,000 gallon central gasoline storage facility was installed at 
the High School. This became necessary when suppliers served notice that extra charges 
would be made for deliveries to more than one location. The situation was further com- 
plicated with the introduction of nolead fuels. The new gasoline dispensers employ a 
ticketed record of sales to appropriate departments for accounting purposes. A turn- 
around, primarily for school busses, was constructed at the cul-de-sac at the North- 
westerly termination of Doane Street. This too, was a joint effort between several depart- 
ments. We are grateful to Police Chief Feola who donated the land to make the project 



19 



possible. Both the Highway and Tree & Park Departments did the work. Next, the tennis 
courts at Milliken Field were totally resurfaced and new fencing added in conjunction 
with the Recreation Committee. Lastly, the practice area of MilHken Field has been 
further improved and fences relocated. All the fill for the project, which was substantial, 
was delivered to the site at no cost from the various construction projects in the town. 

The other members of the Board wish to take this opportunity to publicly congratulate 
fellow member Mary Jeanette Murray on her election to the General Court of the Com- 
monwealth and to wish her well. 

The entire Board extends its sincere appreciation to all Townspeople, officials, em- 
ployees, boards, and committees for their cooperation and assistance during the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Arthur L. Clark, Chairman 

Mary Jeanette Murray

Planning Board report by Mark E. Goodrich 

Report to Town Meeting by the Planning Board Re Water Project. 
Special Town Meeting Monday, January 19, 1976. 

The following is presented conditionally, and if and only if the water project to be 



23 



presented tonight passes, the Planning Board will agree to the following: 

The Planning Board is most sympathetic to the water problem in Cohasset. Our 
remarks are not addressed to the water project per se, but to changes in the zoning by-law 
proposed by the water project's sponsors. Further, these recommendations are based on 
the premise that the amendment to the zoning by-law. The Flood Plain and Watershed 
Protection District Amendment of the last town meeting is in effect. We discussed this 
with Charles Humphrey, who is associated with Town Council and who is the lawyer for 
the Water Department. He felt this was a safe assumtion. The Planning Board has re- 
viewed and held a public hearing with regard to the amendment as required by law at the 
request ofthe Water Department. It was unfortunate that the Planning Board has to hold 
its mandatory hearing under such short notice and such complex conditions. It is the 
board's understanding that the proponents of the water supply project feel that if these 
proposed changes are not met, the project will be seriously impaired because of the dead- 
lines present in the funding program. The recommendations which follow were made on 
the basis of three members of the Planning Board recommending we follow this course, 
one against and one abstaining. The person against this recommendation feels very 
strongly the informative process, the checks and balances that are inherent in a Board of 
Appeals hearing are too valuable to be compromised. We are all very sympathetic with 
this stand. The person abstaining further felt that these recommendations were too broad 
and left the Flood Plain and Watershed Protection District by-law too weakened. 
Because of the Town's serious need for water, we are compromising our best thoughts and 
desires as to how this by-law change could be made. We are doing this because of the time 
involved to make these changes in relation to the stated urgency on the part of the Water 
Department do not coincide. We, therefore, are making the following recommended 
changes to the proposed amendment to the zoning by-law as printed in the special town 
meeting warrant. This is a compromise in response to the changes proposed by the Water 
Department. Our recommendation is conditioned upon these changes being made. Our 
changes are to limit the scope ofthe proposed amendment to this particular project. In 
Paragraph Six it was strongly recommended by the minority on the board that at least the 
word Cohasset be inserted so it would read, "offices, buildings and works for Cohasset 
public water supply purposes. . . ." However, the majority of the Board approved this 
change without that being inserted. 

1 . Under P. 6, line4, after the word "incidental", add the three v^ords public recreational 
uses. 

U nder P. 6, line 5 , after the w ord "public" add the two words water supply. 

U nder P. 6, line 6, after the word "control" add the two words and management. 

Thus making P. 6 read as follows: 

"6. the creation, construction, alteration, enlargement, maintenance, and proper use of 
dams, reservoirs, water control structures, water treatment storage, pumping and trans- 
mission facilities together with appropriate incidental public recreational uses, struc- 
tures, offices and buildings and works for public water supply purposes and under the 
control and management of any Federal, State or municipal agency, all as may be per- 
mitted by general or special laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and not with- 
standing the fact that any of the same may temporarily or permanently alter (1) the 
water level; (2) the nature of flood storage capacity; and (3) the natural flow of water 
within the district." 

2. That Item? be stricken. 



24- 



3. Assuming, and ONLY IF G of Section 1 A of the Special Flood Plain and Watershed 
Protection District is in effect and will be in effect, will we agree to any zoning change 
which deletes F, Protection of Natural Features, which is in the Zoning By-Law adopted 
in 1969. It should be pointed out that this amendment to our by-law, Special Flood Plain 
and Watershed Protection District may not be in effect, because it may as yet have been 
approved by the Attorney General of the Commonwealth. We refer to this in our in- 
troductory remarks. 

Further, the Planning Board wishes to go on notice that there is enough time with regard 
to the sewer plans and engineering that it expects and requests it be kept abreast by the 
Sewer Commissioners in their studies. 

In that regard the Planning Board has requested and has scheduled a meeting with the 
Sewer Commissioners for 8:00 p.m. February 2. We are making a special point of this 
because we wish to avoid the last minute gun-to-the temple pressure tactic that was used in 
this instance. 

We feel the public has a right to know and understand the type of facilities it is voting to 
pay for, and to use, and to live with in the future. 

We hope that in the future other boards such as the Board of Water Commissioners and 
the Sewer Commissioners will respect and foster the attention of all interested citizens of 
this Town in their plans and programs in their formative stage. 

Amendment by Mark G oodrich for the Planning Board. 

Moved Under P. 6, line 4, after the word "incidental", add the three words public 

recreational uses. 

That Item 7 be stricken. 

Advisory Board recommends against the amendment.

MEMORANDUM re MR. JOSEPH BARRESI 

Cohassethas some things to boast about besides its beauty and one of them is its many 
capable citizens who give of their time and talent to help run the Town. 

Prominent in this group of volunteers, is the Advisory Committee which throughout 
the year contributes a great deal of time, energy and experience in assisting us to make in- 
telligent decisions regarding Town Affairs. We have been particularly fortunate over the 
past years, in having highly knowledgeable and dedicated advisory Committees. 

We have been doubly fortunate in having had outstanding chairmen of these com- 
mittees, who have clearly and simply supplied the information and advice necessary to de- 
cide on the q uestions brought before us. 

Our present chairman, Mr. Joseph Barresi, falls in this category of outstanding chair- 
men. He came to Cohasset in 1961, having filled the position of Director of the Boston 
Municipal Research Bureau from 1953 to 1976. He has resigned this position to become a 
vice-president in Scudder, Stevens & Clark, in the municipal bonds division. He is 
presently president of the Massachusetts Association of Advisory Board chairmen. He 
has also coached Little League Teams. 

The Cohasset Town By-Laws specify that a member of the Advisory Committee may 
not serve more than two consecutive terms, which Mr. Barresi has done, so he must retire. 

His administration of the Committee as chairman and the clarity of his explanations at 
Town Meeting, have been superior. We are grateful to him for a conscientious and skillful 
j ob and believe our appreciation can be best expressed by the applause of this Meeting. 

Signed — 
Paul Blackmur.

owing to the circumstances relating to soil condition, shape, or topography of such land 
or structures and especially affecting such land or structures but not affecting generally

ordinance or by-law would involve substantial hardship, financial or otherwise to the

stantial detriment to the public good and without nullifying or substantially derogating 
from the intent or purpose of such Zoning By-Law. No variance may authorize a use or 
activity not otherwise permitted in the district in which the land or structure is located.

to be made by other owners of their neighborhood land, structures or buildings in the 
same district. 

(c) The unique conditions and circumstances are not the result of actions of the 
applicant taken subsequent to the adoption of the By-Law. 

(d) Relief, if approved, will not cause substantial detriment to the public good or im- 
pair the purposes and intent of this by-law.

necessary to support the intent and purpose of this Zoning By-Law.

REPORT ON COUNCIL ON AGING 

Open meetings of the Cohasset Council On Aging are held every second Tuesday of the 
month at 10:00 a.m. at the First Parish House. The nine member board voluntarily meets 
to discuss the implementations of plans concerning the welfare and activities of this very 
important segment of the town's population — the elderly. 

The following programs and activities now available are made possible through the 
efforts of the Social Service League, the Cohasset Housing Authority, the Council and 
over 200 dedicated willing volunteers. 

HEALTH CARE: A "Keep Well" Clinic is held by the Town Nurse every third Thurs- 
day of the month at the First Parish H ouse. A similar clinic is held every third Wednesday 
at 60 Elm Street. Additionally, flu shots are given every year at the offices of the Social 
Service League. A 11 q ualified citzens are welcome. 

HOUSING: UndertheCohasset Housing Authority 54 units are now fully occupied at 
60 Elm Street, 383-1948. 

INFORMATION: News concerning upcoming social, educational or recreational 
activities is published monthly in the VISTA which is mailed to over 300 homes each 
month. To receive this important source of information call 383-1 105 weekday mornings. 

NUTRITION: Volunteers from the Social Service League supervise an increasingly 
popular program— Meals-On-Wheels. Six days a week hot meals are delivered to the 
homes of the elderly who need assistance in the preparation of food. Special diets can also 
be arranged when required. There is a nominal fee of $1.10 per meal, but additional 
financial aid can be arranged with the Council, when necessary. The budget of the Council 



120- 



pays the difference between the fee and actual cost of $1.55 per meal. Meals are prepared 
by the Red Lion Inn. The program is now serving meals at the rate of over 3500 per year, 
up from last year's 2800. Social Luncheons, sponsored by the Council, prepared by the 
High School are served every Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. at the First Parish House during the 
school year. Over 30 volunteers from St. Anthony's, St. Stephens', First Parish and 
Second Parish Congregational Churches serve the meal. Approximately 700 meals were 
served last year, up from about 500. Usually a short film follows the luncheon. Those 
interested should call383-1105 by Monday noon. 

RECREATION: The Council sponsors one bus trip a year. Information concerning 
this is published in the VISTA. Also, the Council works closely with the 60-Plus Club 
whose membership of over 300 participate in theater trips, luncheons, bus trips, gala 
parties and fairs and who meet the third Thursday of the month at the First Parish House. 
Now that the town has a Recreational Director, it is hoped that many new programs will 
be instituted in the coming year. 

TRANSFORATION: The Senior Shuttle Bus continues to increase in popularity and 
usage. This year over 1 00 passengers per week were driven by over 30 competent volunteer 
drivers. Lastyear, the figure was 60 perweek. Also, approximately 10 volunteers drive the 
Sunday Church bus, and the bus was made available for selected evening functions in the 
town. Those interested should call 383-0821 before 10:00 a.m. for morning rides and 
before 12:30 p.m. for afternoons; for church bus call same number by Friday afternoon 
and for last minute changes 383-1814. This Council service is probably the most used by 
the elderly for it makes possible the participation in a wide variety of social and business 
activities within the town.

CAPITAL BUDGET COMMITTEE 

During the year 1976 the Capital Budget Committee carried out its mission according 
to the procedures outlined on pages 113-1 14 of the 1975 Annual Report. As a result of 
their work the committee was able to distribute a comprehensive printed summary for use 
during Town Meeting proceedings. Many favorable comments were received regarding 
the content and format of this summary and the use of priority designations rather than 
recommendations. Therefore, the Capital Budget Committee plans to continue operating 
in this manner.

As in the past the function of the Board of Health continues to be the promotion and 
protection of human comfort and well being by upholding current, local and state health 
codes and regulations. 

The board actively monitors the various clinics which the Social Service League has 
been conducting. Overall, participation of the town's citizens has increased. There was a 
very favorable response to the three formal swine bivalent and mono-valent flu vaccine 
clinics held during the fall. It should be noted no serious untoward effects were reported 
for a total of 895 injections. 

The health agent, public health nursing staff and volunteers must be highly commended 
for their efficiency during these clinics. 

The recycling program has and will continue to improve with the upgrading of the 
physical location at the disposal area as well as the presence and useage of the new com- 
partmental disposal bins. Further plans for compaction of the material are being 
formulated. 

Final plans for a three phase sanitary landfill area were submitted to the state and ap- 
proval is expected in the near future. This will give the town a minimum of six years usage 
at the present location.

The incidence of Tuberculosis is not declining. The method of treatment has changed 
and people are not hospitalized as long or as often. By careful attention and good follow 



127 



up on required tests, treatment can be started earlier and thereby prevent and control the 
spread somewhat. As recommended by the State and Town By-Laws Mr. O'Brien and the 
Board of Health have been most cooperative with the League in seeing that all food 
handlers, school personnel and employees of nursing homes are up to date on their tests. 
There are 23 food handling establishments and all have cooperated. 

The incidence of veneral disease is not declining but it is difficult to arrive at accurate 
figures. Many active cases and contacts are not reported due to the nature of the illness. 

The Cohasset Social Service League provides the nursing service for the Board of 
Health and all residence are covered for health services. The senior Health Clinics have in- 
creased in attendance and much appreciated by those attending. With the advent of 
planned parenthood the age range of our Keep Well CHnic has changed — fewer children 
at the Well Child — more attendance at the Senior Clinics. 

It was my pleasure to have worked this year with Mr. Kevin O'Brien and the Board of 
Health. They are most anxious to see that the health needs of the townspeople are met. 

Once again Mrs. Loud and I are indebted to the Water, Police, and Highway depart- 
ment for their cooperation and help. 

We wish for Cohasset continued good health. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ellenora Lenihan R.N.

Leading fire protection authorities place an average service life for a pumping engine at 
15-20 years; and 20 - 25 years for a ladder truck, plus a reserve service of 5 years. The 
above list giving function, assignment and age of the automotive equipment of the depart- 
ment points to the fact that much of the apparatus has reached or exceeds the normal aver- 
age service life. 

The 1976 Town Meeting appropriated funds for the purchase of a new aerial ladder 
truck. Specifications were drawn up and bids were sought in compliance with local and 
state regulations. Based upon my recommendation the Board of Selectmen approved the 
purchase of this vehicle from the Seagrave Corporation, one of the oldest and most 
reliable manufacturers of this type of truck. 

This aerial ladder truck will be diesel powered with automatic transmission, power 
steering and enclosed cab. The concept of the rear mounted turntable and ladder make the 
overall length of the truck shorter and more maneuverable, important for the narrow 
winding streets and roadways. 

A program of systematic replacement of apparatus is necessary to keep the financial im- 
pact at a minimum and maintain the age of the apparatus within reasonable limits. This 
type of program is presently being conducted by the Capital Budget Committee. How- 
ever, I feel that it would be wise to annually set aside funds to meet these and similar 
obligations. This would also aid in reducing the financial impact by spreading it over 
several years and having the funds on hand at time of purchase. 

PERSONNEL 

The Table of Organization of the department calls for twenty-four officers and men, 
assigned in four groups of six men each group. Since July 1, 1975, the department has 
been forced to operate at a reduced rate of manpower due to lack of a list of certified can- 
didates from the Division of Personnel Administration (Civil Service). At the end of 
September a list of candidates was received, the candidates interviewed, and the following 
appointments made; effective November 1, 1976 . . Mark H. Trask, Thomas P. Finegan, 
James P. Runey, Matthew B. Marr and James R. Sheerin. The appointment of these five 



-131 



Cohasset men to the department restored the level of manpower to twenty-four or six men 
per group. They will be assigned to a regular work shift January 3, 1977, and have com- 
pleted a basic training in all aspects of firefighting and department procedures. 

The paper strength of each of these groups is six men but with the authorized leaves 
granted— vacation, sick leave, etc. it is more realistically five men. In order to maintain a 
basic manning for the fire protection of Cohasset and operate the ambulance at a satis- 
factory level— I feel that four additional firefighters are needed. Funds for these men have 
been included in the budget for fiscal 1977-1 978. 

With the exception of personnel added to the department to compensate for a re- 
duction in hours — no personnel has been added in ten years to strengthen the manning on 
each group. The number of incidents has almost doubled without the operation of the 
ambulance. This addition of manpower is also outlined in the report of Mr. Warren Y. 
Kimball on Fire Protection in Cohasset, dated 1974. 

Firefighter Roger W. Lincoln was promoted, after passing a competetive examination, 
to the rank of Fire Captain; effective July 1 , 1976.

STATIONS AND EQUIPMENT 

The condition of the two substations at Beechwood and North Cohasset has not 
changed since last year. They are still very much inadequate in size, condition and loca- 



132 



tion. Again I must state that serious consideration must be given to this problem. It has a 
direct bearing on the replacement of apparatus; because of their restrictive size, and with 
manpower being a serious problem it restricts the deployment of men and equip- 
ment — because of their locations in the extremities of the Town. 

Hopefully the Committee that is currently in existence to study this housing problem of 
the Fire Department can make a report that will initiate some action and get this problem 
off top dead center. 

In conclusion I would like to thank the citizens of Cohasset for their cooperation and 
support of the Fire Department. To the Honorable Board of Selectmen, other depart- 
ment heads and department members, and all committees for their understanding, 
guidance and assistance. To all members of the Fire Department for their fine coopera- 
tion and performance of assigned duties, my sincere thanks and appreciation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles Piepenbrink 

Chief of Fire Department and 

Forest Fire Warden 



REPORT OF THE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 

The Highway Department spent most of the winter months plowing snow and sanding 
streets and private ways. 

Pond Street was resurfaced, drain pipes and catch basins were installed. The estimated 
contract for this job was $45,000.00. The Highway Department completed it for under 
$30,000.00. 

We helped the School Department with the tennis court problem, the Government 
Island with its parking area and the turn around at the end of Doane Street. 

Two and one half miles of Type I Bituminous concrete, 2,500 feet of mix in place sur- 
face was laid and 8,000 gallons of liquid asphalt were used in sealing streets. 3545 feet of 
drainpipe and 20 catch basins were installed. 

Streets were swept, catch basins and culverts cleaned. Street signs and road lines were 
painted. Street signs were repaired and some fences replaced. 

This year the drainage should be completed on Linden Drive and the effort will be made 
to correct the conditions at Doane Street. 

I thank the Town Officials who have assisted me during the year. To the men of the 
Highway Department who work regularly and faithfully under sometimes very difficult 
conditions, I am very grateful. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Louis C. Bailey, Jr. 
Highway Surveyor

ANNUAL REPORT OF 
\ THE GOVERNMENT ISLAND COMMITTEE 

With the generous assistance of the Highway Department, the entrance driveway at the 
Habormaster's office, the driveway leading past the rental dwellings and into the parking 
lot, as well as the parking lot, was brought to finish grade and paved with mix in place. 
The parking lot was used by the Rotarians, St. Anthony's Church and Sailing Club Pic- 
nic. There is now available for Town Departments a quantity of loam and subsoil stock- 
piled adjacent to the parking lot ready for spring removal. This Committee, with the 
assistance of volunteers will start a brush removal program this spring to open up the area 
for picnic sites.

REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 

The Personnel Committee is looking forward to being able to carry on the plans of its 
predecessors as well as making some further implementations. In this connection there 
will be the continuation and expansion of the Central Filing System for sick leave and 
vacation data. 

During the past year the various Department heads — excluding the Police and Fire 
Department — submitted information concerning the duties of the employees in their 
respective departments, in accordance with a request from the Personnel Committee. The 
information submitted must now be examined and evaluated. 

The Selectmen have appointed the Personnel Committee as Bargaining agents for the 
Board of Selectmen in negotiations with the Cohasset Police, Fire and Public Works 
employees. Mr. Charles Humphreys will act as negotiator for the Town. Mr. Humphreys 
will be responsible to the Personnel Committee who will in turn be responsible to the 
Board of Selectmen. 

On July 1, 1976, Mr. Frank B. Chatterton, former Chairman of the Personnel 
Committee, and Mr. James F. Kearney left the Personnel Committee. The loss of those 
two Committee members is already being felt. The Personnel Committee has now been 
brought up to full strength by the three following appointments: Millard L. Drake, 
R oger L. R ice and Leonard F. Lawrence.

REPORT OF THE DOG OFFICER 

i 

I was appointed Dog Officer of the Town of Cohasset, 1 July 1976 b^ the Board of 
Selectmen to enforce Article 24, as amended, of the last Town Meeting, also to enforce 
regulationsasdefinedinChapter 140, Section 136A-175 of the General Laws of the Com- 
monwealth of Massachusetts. 

During the past six months 133 complaints were investigated. Several restraining 
orders were issued. 

We have been using the Kresshingham Kennels in Hingham as a pound. This is working 
out quite satisfactory for the Town. I have had excellent support from the Board of Select- 
men and Chief of Police. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John H. Barrett, Dog Officer 

REPORT OF HARBORMASTER 

To the Citizens of Cohasset and Board of Selectmen: 

The demands on Cohasset Harbor are greater each year. There is no way we can handle 
more boats without long range planning, which should start immediately. The vessels in 
the Harbor are operating at a hardship level due to overcrowding. This past year, the 
Selectmen chose to freeze the waiting list on the recommendation of the Harbor Study 
Committee. At the present time there is a three to five year waiting period. Due to the in- 
crease in Commercial interests, we do not see any hope to cut this in the near future. 

The following was undertaken under Capital Outlay this past year. A new 35 HP motor 
was purchased for the work boat. A contract was let out for the rebuilding of Lawrence 
Wharf — completion date to be April 1, 1977. This finalizes a plan started five years ago to 
rebuild all Town floats in order to cut down on maintenance costs. At the present time the 
Department is maintaining eleven floats, four runways, three piers and a walkway at Mar- 
gin Street. Due to the total ban on using hoses put into effect by the Water Department, it 
became necessary to ask for a transfer to have a 2" self-primer pump installed at Govern- 
ment Island in order to wash down bait juice and other matter. 

One other project is still to be undertaken this fiscal year. Removal of old piling left 
from the tearing down of Government Island Pier is necessary because of deeper draft 
boats using the facility. This project will be completed in the Spring. 

For the best interest of all persons using the facilities of Cohasset Harbor and from the 
standpoint of safety and navigation, it continues to be necessary for all Harbor rules and 
regualtions to be strictly complied with. 

There is a definite need for more man hours to be applied to Night Patrol. It was proven 
last summer with the help of a CETA employee working 40 hours a week — 8:00 p.m. to 
4:00 a.m., that vandalism was cut to a bare minimum. The more man hours applied the 
better the results. I am requesting the same hourly coverage for the next fiscal year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harry H. Ritter 
Harbormaster

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF 
THE COH ASSET FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY^ 1976 

1 976 was a pivotal year for the C ohasset library. 

THE TOWN VOTED TO RENOVATE LIBRARY. At the May town meeting, 
$201,000 was voted to renovate unused space in the library's lower level and to rearrange 
the use of library space to produce an efficient, economical and attractive town library. 

Cohasset's support of the renovation proposal was strong affirmation of the Hbrary's 
importance to the town. Thevote was also a great credit to the hard work and cooperative 
efforts of many persons. The work of the trustees over several years provided a base. The 
Friends of the Library proved their friendship by their outstanding efforts to provide in- 
formation to the town on the proposal. The various town boards conscientiously screened 
the plan and supplied important support. The town meeting carefully considered the 
merits of renovation and decided that the time to act has arrived. 

RENOVATION PLANS PROCEED. Since May, the trustees have been working 
closely with the architects, Anderson Notter Finegold Associates. The final design of the 
renovation has been accepted by the trustees and the ensuing phases of construction 
documents, contract bidding, actual construction, and furnishing are geared to comple- 
tion in the Fall of 1977. 

The addition of a part-time professional to the library staff has significantly increased 
both service to users and overall efficiency of the library's operations. Approval of a 
CETA part-time employee, funded by the federal government, has permitted the library 
to serve Cohassett's children more effectively, both in the public schools and at the library. 

The library staff continues to perform a truly outstanding job for Cohasset under the 
direction of our librarian, Richard Hayes. The Friends of the Library, under Jacqueline 
Dormitzer's leadership, continue to be indispensable in both supportive activities and in 
the many volunteer hours which produce both substantive results and immeasurable 
vitality to the library. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sheila S. Evans, Chairman 
for the Library Trustees

RESERVE REQUEST SERVICE. The library filled about 3,300 reserve requests for 
book>^,' magazine articles, records or information which were not owned or in circulation 
wifen users needed them. This is a 43% increase over last year. Most of the materials 
requested are purchased because they will be useful to many others. The library purchases 
multiple copies of popular books so users will not have to wait unreasonably long. 
Reserves represent less than 4% of total loans — most users find what they want on shelf. 

INTERLIBRARY LOAN. If the library cannot or should not buy something a user 
needs, it can usually be obtained through interlibrary loan (ILL) from another library. Of 
the 3,300 requests mentioned, 233 (7%) were sent to Cohasset by other libraries. In 
addition to this number are films and deposit collections from the Regional Library 
System. The Thomas Crane Public Library in Quincy filled 53% of these ILL requests, the 
Boston Public Library 20%, and 12 other public libraries and private institutions the rest. 
ILL requestsarecirculated through the Regional Library System by phone, mail, teletype 
and daily delivery van. 

SUNDAY OPENINGS. Since September, the library has increased hours to include 
Sunday afternoons, September through June. The library is now open seven days a week. 
Sunday hours are very popular. 

FEDERAL GRANT. A grant of $3,030 was awarded by the Massachusetts Department 
of Education, Bureau of Library Extension, underTitle I of the Library Services and Con- 
struction Act. The fund was used to initiate a new service consisting of 532 adult educa- 
tional audio cassettes, six cassette players, and storage equipment. The materials may be 
borrowed free of charge.

SUMMER READING INCENTIVE PROGRAM. This regular summer program for 
children is intended to promote skill and pleasure in reading. Reading Achievement 
Certificates are given to everyone who reads ten books and a paperback book of the 
reader's choice is given to everyone who reads twenty books during the program. Partici- 
pation was up 33% over last year, with 92 children receiving certificates and 72 earning 
books. Hundreds of other children used the library — circulation of children's books was 
38% higher in June-August than in any other three months of the year. Our goal continues 
to be that every child in Cohasset should find the public library a valuable summer 
recreation place. 

FRIENDS OF THE COHASSET LIBRARY, INC. This membership organization 
donated over 2,000 hours of work at routine library tasks and countless hours in service 
to shut-ins and nursing homes, programs for adults and children, exhibits, publicity, 
membership recruitment and the annual book sale. Funds raised in membership dues 
and the book sale pay all expenses of programs and publicity, and enable the Friends to 
purchase books and special items for the library. 

GIFTS. Dozens of people gave used books, some of which were added to the library 
collection and the rest of which were donated to the Friends book sale. Cash gifts for 
books were received from: 

M rs. R obert G . Ripley, in memory of Mary J. McCarthy 

Cohasset Women's Club, in memory of Elaine Gould, Lou Mulligan, Helen Rust 
and Helen Vosoff 

Joy Spalding Rabin, in memory of Elizabeth Howkins 

Cohasset Garden Club, in memory of Mrs. Roger Coulter and Mrs. Conover Fitch. 

With such gifts, the library purchases unusually fine books, in which a suitable memorial 
book plate is placed. We believe such a memorial is among the finest possible, and know 
that the books will give pleasure to others for years to come. 

Richard E. Hayes 
Chief Librarian 



RECREATION DIRECTOR'S ANNUAL REPORT-1976 

The annual report of the Director of Recreation offers the opportunity to inform the 
citizens of Cohasset of progress in the area of recreational programs, facilities, services, 
and opportunities. 

Registrations for the 1976 playground program numbered over 300. The program 
operated for 8 weeks offering a variety of activities such as arts and crafts, low-organized 
games, sports, Music Circus performances, field trips, and swimming. An end of the year 
cookout was held at the Little League field for all participants. 

Approximately 175 individuals registered for tennis lessons during the summer 
months. There will be a recommendation for increased instructors for the summer of 1977. 

Four (4) Tuesday evening band concerts were held during the summer, all of which 
were well attended. Concerts will again be planned for next year. 



-138- 



OnNovember9, 1976, the Recreation Commission appointed Cohasset's first full-time 
Director of Recreation in the person of John M. Worley. With the advent of a full-time 
director, Cohasset's recreation programs and services will expand and become year 
'round. The Recreation Department hopes to offer recreation for all citizens. We would 
appreciate as much feed-back from as many residents as possible in order that we may 
remain in close contact with the needs of our community on a dynamic basis. 

This year the street hockey program, co-ordinated by Mr. John Langmaid, was con- 
ducted under the auspices of the Recreation Commission, over 180 youngsters registered 
for the 1 4 week winter program. 

Ski lessons for youth and adults will be offered for the 1976-1977 winter with lessons 
held at Blue Hills, Milton, Mass. 

The Recreation Commission and Director would like to extend warm thanks to the 
Board of Selectmen, School Department, and the many other departments, committees, 
and individuals who have helped make a smooth transition from part-time to full-time. 
Specifically, we would like to thank Mr. Arthur Clark, Mr. Kenneth Sargent, Mr. 
William Signorelli, Dr. John Maloney, and Mr. John Raftery for their invaluable 
assistance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John M. Worley, Director 
Cohasset Recreation Dept. 



REPORT OF THE COHASSET CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

» 
The Conservation Commission held many hearings during the year on applications 
under the Wetlands Protection Act, Chapter 131, Section 40. The commission continues 
to spend the major portion of its time administering the Wetlands Protection Act. A 
major effort was made during the year to halt the creation of "man-made beaches along 
the shores of Little Harbor. 

The Commission also focused its energy during the year on acquiring the tract of land 
owned by the American Legion on Forest Avenue. It is hoped that this land can be ac- 
quired in the near future and that reimbursement of one-half the cost thereof can be ob- 
tained from the Commonwealth through the "self-help" program.

ANNUAL REPORT OF PLANNING BOARD 

During the past year, the work of the Planning Board has been in three general 
areas: routing administration of existing regulations; reviewing and revising the zoning 
by-law; and future planning. 

The Board has spent many hours reviewing and drafting revisions to the zoning by-law 
in order to clarify it and bring it into conformity with the State Zoning Act as amended. 
The Board plans to present a new by-law for town meeting action which hopefully will be 
more useful for citizens and town boards. 

To help citizens use the present by-law, as well as to evaluate new proposals, the Board 
has compiled a zoning packet including zoning and flood plain maps, the 1969 by-law and 
all amendments. 

The Board has adopted and printed Site Plan Review Rules and Regulations. 

Routine work of the Planning Board includes evaluating subdivisions where a new 
roadway is created, site plans, and divisions of land parcels. The Board attends Board of 
Appeals hearings and submits pertinent recommendations. 

In the area of future planning, the Board is working as part of a Town committee on 
plans to improve traffic circulation, parking and beautification in the village. Because of 
the great impact that future sewer facilities will have upon the town's future, the Board 
plans to be fully involved in the study of these facilities. We have met with the Board of 
Health to discuss percolation test procedures which are critical factors influencing the 
town's future development. The above activities stem from the recommendations of the 
Coastal Zone Study completed last year. Other aspects of future planning that have com- 
manded the Board's attention include the Cohasset Growth Policy Committee's report 
and future development along R oute 3 A. 

Three new members joined the Board late in the spring. Wayne Sawchuk was elected, 
and Elizabeth Holt and Glenn Pratt were appointed to fill vacancies. Near perfect atten- 
dance characterizes the weekly meeting of the Board, as well as numerous on-site inspec- 
tions and Saturday sessions. The Board welcomes citizens at all its meetings. 

One of the most valuable activities of the Board has been meeting with other town 
boards and committees to discuss subjects of mutual concern. The Board hopes such

REPORT OF THE BY-LAW STUDY COMMITTEE 

The By-Law Study Committee of the Town of Cohasset reports with regret the resig- 
nation of John A, Golden, Jr., who served as its Chairman until January, 1976. Cornelia 
Leary O'M alley has been chosen as his successor. The remaining four members of the 
Committee appointed by the Selectmen in 1974 meet at least one evening a week in the 
Town Hall. 

The Committee is in the process of reorganizing the existing municipal By-Laws and 
incorporating relevant actions of the General Court and the Town Meeting since the last 
revision of the By-Laws in 1960. Because of the interdependence of the various articles 
and sections of the proposed reorganized and revised By-Laws, the Committee feels that it 
would be more practical to present a complete revision of the By-Laws, section by section, 
for consideration at a future Town Meeting, rather than to present individual sections 
from time to time. Before the final draft is submitted for action by the Town Meeting, the 
Committee plans to send each section to the appropriate officer or department chairman 
for review and recommendations and to hold a public hearing. 

The Committee wishes to take this opportunity to express its appreciation for coopera- 
tion received from the Town Moderator, The Board of Selectmen, and other municipal 
officers and department chairmen who have provided the Committee with valuable in- 
formation.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF 
TREE & PARK COMMISSSIONERS - 1976 

This year the Tree & Park Department has acquired a tree-climber through which the 
Town will benefit in the care of our trees. The tree planting program has gone as expected 
and will continue throughout the Town. 

We're in the process of building a practice field at Milliken Field. Fencing has been in- 
stalled. Re-seeding has been done on areas of the Town Common. 

A special thanks to the men of the Department, and other departments, who have 
assisted us. Many thanks!

REPORT OF THE HISTORIC COMMISSION 

The inventory of the towns physical historic assets has nearly been completed at the dis- 
trict level. The information is now being reviewed and correlated to be submitted to the 
M assachusetts H istoric Commission. We hope to have this lengthy project completed this 
year. The state Historic Commission has been using our inventory procedure as an 
example for other communities to follow. 

The historic records of the town are being brought together, reviewed and cross in- 
dexed from the various storage places in the town hall. Until this time, there has not been 
any indexing of town records and this will be a valuable project in preserving the history 
of the town. We are fortunate to have a CETA employee, Joe Hamilton, to do the work 
for us. 

We are negotiating the possibility of the South Shore Vocational School rebuilding the 
town clock. The works need a major overhauling, there is one broken gear and a badly 
worn gear in the time train. If the clock is rebuilt now it will insure the town of having it 
keep time for at least another hundred years. 

Our meetings are open to the public and we welcome volunteers who would like to help 
in preserving the historic flavor of the past and present in Cohasset.

REPORT OF THE SHELLFISH WARDEN 

I submit herewith a report of my stewardship as Shellfish Warden for the year 1976. 

We were assisted this past year by Rev. Richard Burton, a marine biologist, associated 
with Project Dominion of Bridgewater, Mass. with reseeding efforts in Little Harbor. 

Extensive cultivation was possible due to $1 ,000.00 we received from the finance com- 
mittee toward Project Dominion efforts. 

We are anxious to see the results from this effort in the near future. 

Respectfully submitted,

SOUTH SHORE MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 
REPORT OF OPERATIONS IN 1976 

Submitted, herewith, is a report of the South Shore Mosquito Control Project's opera- 
tions for the period November 1 , 1 975 , to October 31,1 976. 

The Project is an organized, year round, regionally operational effort to combat the 
nuisance and menace of mosquitoes. 

The Project comprises the communities of Braintree, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hingham, 
Hull, Marshfield, Norwell, Quincy, Scituate and Weymouth, an area covering 171 square 
miles with a population in excess of 250,000. 

The Project was established in 1953 under the Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 
252 and Chapter 1 12, and Acts under and according to the provision to these and other 
laws pertaining to mosquito control. 

The Project's operation can be classified under three categories: 

1. Water Management 

2. Larvaciding 

3. Adulticiding 

Water Management is where stagnant and brackish water, the need of all mosquitoes, is 
caused to circulate and flush off, preventing the development of mosquito larvae. During 
the past year 2048 man hours was spent on this operation, opening 62,760 feet of marsh 
reclamation ditches. 27,975 feet of new ditches was installed. 19,775 feet of obstruction 
was cleared from brooks and streams and 88,400 feet of brush was cut and cleared for pur- 
pose of access. 

Larvaciding is when stagnant or brackish water is found to have mosquito larvae 
present and must then be sprayed. Helicopter and Fixed Wing aircraft started off the lar- 
vaciding operation in the Spring by treating 9840 acres of woodland swamps. This opera- 
tion is preceded by checking sites for a mosquito larvae count and then post sprayed 
checked for results. 

During the main part of the season, crews circulate throughout the Project checking 
breeding sites. 1571 man hours was spent larval checking and 529 man hours was spent in 
actual larvaciding with ground equipment, treating 1062 acres. 384 man hours was spent 
larval treating 1 3,062 storm catch basins. 

Adulticiding is when it becomes necessary, due to a noted or reported large number of 
mosquitoes, to lay down a space or residue spray in the infested area with a vehicle 
mounted mist sprayer or back pack mist sprayer. 2244 man hours was spent on this opera- 
tion treating 9 1 40 acres. 

The Project received 1239 request calls for service. All calls were answered and treated 
in one manner or another. 

The Project is also engaged in two other programs in five of its towns, the control of the 
biting Greenhead Fly and the brackish water Midge. 6040 acres was aerial treated in three 
towns for Greenhead Fly Control and 1 75 acres was aerial treated for Midge Control. 

During the past year the Project used three types of insecticides: Abate — in a sand 
granular application at a rate maximum of 0.2 of a pound per acre, Baytex — formulated 



145 



.in water or oil at a rate maximum of .046 of a pound per acre for larval control and a rate 
maximum of .062 of a pound for adult control, and Malathion — formulated in water at a 
rate maximum of 0.2 of a pound to the acre for adult control. All insecticides used by the 
Project are registered for use in mosquito control operations and the recommended maxi- 
mum dosage never exceeded. All Project personnel have been duly licensed by the Massa- 
chusetts Pesticide Board qualifying them to handle and disburse insecticides safely. 

The Project wishes to extend its appreciation for the time and service rendered by the 
Board of Commissioners and acknowledges all assistance given by state and municipal 
officials; also the courtesies extended it by the many individuals they encountered in the 
past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Simon J. Veneau, 

Superintendent

REPORT OF THE COHASSET WIRE DEPARTMENT 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

I herewith submit the annual report of the Wire Department for the year 1976. 

Fire and Traffic Signals: 

Fire alarm wire was replaced on Forest Avenue and a portion of Jerusalem Road, 
Sohier Street, and parts of Gushing Highway. In all, over three miles of new wire was in- 
stalled. New boxes were installed on Gushing Highway (2), and at Ripley Road. Two 
boxes were replaced on Atlantic Avenue. Due to saltwater corrosion, all the Hillside 
Streets were trimmed out by the Tree Department, where work will begin this spring on re- 
placement of wire. All boxes were painted and tested. Traffic lights were put in good work- 
ing condition. A new traffic light was installed at North Main Street and Forest Avenue, 
and also a new flashing light on Forest Avenue. These lights were installed through the 
efforts of Mr. Frank Golleton, Director, Governor's Highway Safety Bureau and a Gohas- 
set resident, at no cost to the Town. 

Wire Inspection: 

All work done by electrical contractor was inspected by the Department, and permit 
fees turned into the Town Treasurer. 

Town Buildings: 

All electrical work and repairs was done by the Wire Department in buildings owned by 
the Town. I might add, that all electrical work in the schools is done by the Department 
with a great saving to the Town. 

In conculsion I wish to thank the Board of Selectmen, again this year the men of the 
Tree and Park Department who worked long hours with us trimming out fire Hnes, and a 
special thanks to the men who work with me. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stephen F. Wigmore 
Superintendent of Wire Department

SUPERINTENDENT'S ANNUAL REPORT-1976 

It is with pleasure that I submit to you my Second Annual Report as Superintendent of 
Schools in Cohasset. 

The School Department is appreciative of the fact that the greater part of its funding 
comes from the local property taxpayer. We are making a concerted effort to be cost effec- 
tive and are seeking economical ways to produce educational excellence with a minimum 
increase in expenditures of tax dollars. Like the home owner, we are experiencing in- 
flationary increases in all phases of our school operation, ranging from food for our 
school lunches to tires for our buses and chemicals for our laboratories. We cannot buy 
the same item at last year's prices, and even though we purchase less, we must be careful 
not to economize to the point where we jeopardize the maintenance of on-going and suc- 
cessful educational programs. I am sure that the maintenance of this delicate financial- 
educational balance will continue to challenge the superintendent's creative budgetary 
expertise in the years to come. 

In my message to you last year, I reported we planned to spend a considerable amount 
of time working in the area of program and curriculum improvement. This we have done. 
The reinstitution of mid-year and final examinations at the Junior/ Senior High School, 
together with an increase in the length of the school day ranging from 10 minutes at Deer 
Hill to 38 minutes at the Junior/ Senior High School will prove to be of educational merit. 

As a result of our own assessment, we have begun working to provide K-12 consistency 
in the areas of subject matter, philosophy, and reporting. A systematic design for cur- 
riculum format was introduced throughout the school system, and efforts to revise the 
curriculum in accordance with the design are continuing. Our effort to re-organize and 
coordinate has included a revision of the school system's philosophy, report cards, and 
teacher evaluations; first attempts to develop new operational policy statements have 
begun. Additionally, we have undertaken responsibility for planning in-service training 
programs and workshops for teachers and for conducting research studies and evalua- 
tions, including reviews of our handwriting efforts, attendance requirements, stand- 
ardized test results, and release day programs. 

Academically, we have begun to identify more clearly the specific objectives for each of 
our courses of study. A system-wide effort is being made to emphasize reading and writing 
skills, as well as to improve spelling. We have also established a reading laboratory in the 
Junior H igh School, primarily for poor readers in grade 7. 

Our efforts have not stopped with these improvements, and special attention was 
directed at improving social studies in grades 5 and 6. Furthermore, we added earth 
science in grade 7 and increased offerings in accounting, business arithmetic, typing, and 
general business in grades 9-12. We even improved our physical education-athletic pro- 
gram through the acquisition of a fifteen station weight training machine and 42' x 42' free 
exercise floor mat. 

For the future, we plan to continue our work to develop a consistent K-12 curriculum 
design, and attention will be focused on ways to improve our instructional techniques by 
studying the differences in learning styles that our students exhibit. In this way we will be 
able to create a much stronger instructional program for our children. 

In an attempt to keep the community informed of happenings within our school 



149 



system, we have implemented a series of coffee hours to discuss curriculum; back-to- 
school nights, which focus on classroom organization; parent conferences discussing 
student achievement; and newsletter and menu messages to keep parents apprised of cur- 
rent events; and, lastly, an open-door policy to facilitate more direct communication. The 
response to these programs has been positive, and, consequently, we shall have as one of 
our goals the continuation of these positive communication efforts. 

The astronomical rise of college costs in the past decade is of alarming concern to me. 
Today, the cost of room, board, and tuition is in the $6500-$7500 range per year. This 
rapid rise in costs is expected to continue at an approximate 10% increase for the next 
several years. Thus, the$ 10,000 per year room, board, and tuition cost will result in an ex- 
penditure of $40,000 for a college education in the immediate future. We are now wit- 
nessing academically and intellectually talented students from Cohasset restructuring 
their college choices and, in some cases, discontinuing their educational programs 
because family financial resources and other funds are insufficient to sustain their enroll- 
ment. 

The School Department would like to be able to offer financial scholarship assistance 
to any deserving resident youngster. As Superintendent of Schools, I am making a plea 
fortheestablishmentof a substantial community scholarship fund, which will be 30 or 40 
times larger than the combined amounts given by all of our town organizations. I would 
hope that the community scholarship fund could either incorporate or be in addition to 
already established scholarships. I envision a fund to which donations could be made 
anonymously, in memory of a deceased loved one, or through a last will and testament. 
The organizational and operational arrangements can easily be designed by local banking 
and legal interests. If there is any community response to this concept, I will volunteer to 
be the first to serve on any committee to bring this idea to fruition. 

I am conscious of my good fortune in being associated with education in Cohasset. 
What has impressed me most is the open support of townspeople for a quality program of 
instruction. The cooperation of the parents reflects an attitude which sets a climate where- 
in the staff can function productively, and for this I am thankful. 

I wish to express my personal appreciation to the school committee, community, staff, 
communication councils, and municipal employees for your continued and encouraging 
support. You have made this past year a most enjoyable one for me. Lastly, as a parent, 
taxpayer, and school official, I feel that we can point with pride to the Cohasset School 
System. There is still much to be done to make our school system what you, the 
community, want for your children. With your continued help and support, our aims and 
goals can be realized. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JohnF. Maloney, Ed.D.

SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT 

TREASURER'S REPORT 

Fiscal Year July 1, 1975 to June 30, 1976 

In accordance with Section XII of the South Shore Regional School District Agree- 
ment effective January 6, 1960, 1 submit herewith details of the fiscal year July 1, 1975 
thru J une 30, 1 976 financial transactions of the School District. 

Details are presented with respect to the July 1, 1975 to June 30, 1976 estimated ex- 
penditures and their apportionment to member towns, actual receipts and expenditures, 
and a balance sheet and statement of outstanding debt as of June 30, 1 976. 

Total operating expenditures for the fiscal year were $1,057,020.43 and capital outlay 
expenditures were $62,359.02 details of which are shown in the expenditure schedule. 

Various additional expenditures under self-explanatory titles were made as per details 
set forth in the expenditure schedule. 

Under date of August 7, 1975 a new collective bargaining agreement was effected with 
our teachers which provided a basic increase in salaries of 8% for the year 1975-1976 plus 
an additional 6% basic increase for the year 1 976-1 977. 

Administrative and all other non-teaching personnel salaries were increased July 1, 
1975 an average of 1 1%. Total of all salaries paid equals approximately 73% of operating 
costs. 

During the year under the provisions of Chapter 492, Acts of 1974, and Chapter 436, 
Acts of 1975, Regional School aide in the amount of an additional 15% of Chapter 70 
school aid to local cities and towns was cancelled and a new formula was implemented 
which provided that Regional School aid be paid by the state direct to regional school 
districts. Local operating cost assessments to our member towns for the year 1975-1976 
were reduced by a total amount of $160,837.00 and in place thereof the School District 
received an amount of $ 1 54,08 1 .84 which resulted in a deficit of $6,755. 16 as shown below 
in the Surplus Revenue reconciliation statement. The above mentioned legislation further 
requires that the entire amount of Regional School aid received by a School District shall 
be used to reduce local assessments of member towns for school district operating costs. 

Surplus Revenue was determined to be $593,596.86 as of June 30, 1976 and was derived 
from the following sources:

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS 
FOR THE YEAR 1976 

The year 1976 has, at long last, seen the commencement of construction of the water 
supply augumentation project. The project has been awarded in three separate contracts. 
Contracts No. 1 and No. 2, the treatment plant at Lilly Pond and the control structure on 
Bound Brook at Beechwood Street began on July 19, 1976. Contract No. 3, the Dam & 
Reservoir, located at upper Beechwood Street, mainly in Wampatuck State Park, began 
on December 2nd, 1976. As of this report the control structure has been completed and 
work on the other contracts is moving ahead on schedule with target completion date 
early 1978. 

Your Commissioners look forward to this date with interest and enthusiasm. Our com- 
munity will, at last, have an adequate supply of good quality water for all uses. We realize 
this is not the end of all problems. We must now embark on a long range program of up- 
dating and expanding the distribution system. 

The past Summer proved to be one of the driest on record, causing a total watering ban 
to be imposed early in the season. In spite of the curtailment we were forced to buy water 
from our neighboring town of Scituate, to meet our demands. It is anticipated that a res- 
triction in water usage will be imposed during the Summer and possibly Fall of 1 977. 

Progress continues nevertheless. 13 new accounts were activated, five hundred feet of 6" 
main and one hydrant were added to the system by a private contractor. 10 million 
additional gallons over the last year were distributed. 

The Board would like to express its regrets on the resignation of the former Chairman, 
Alan S. Murphy, Jr., who for nearly nine years worked untirelessly for the community 
and especially in guiding the new facility project to its ultimate construction. His efforts 
will be missed. We extend to him our best wishes for success in his new position as a mem- 
ber of the State Water Resources Commission. John W. Hobbs has been appointed to fill 
the vacancy. We feel his services will be an asset to the Board. 

The Board would also like to thank all Town Officials, Department Heads, Com- 
mittees and Boards for their cooperation and support, and to our Superintendent and De- 
partment Personnel for their continued loyal support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edwin H. Pratt, Superintendent

Board of Water Commissioners
